When I was a kid, we had a "snack bar" at our middle school where you could buy all kinds of goodies. Gold Bars were very popular & always sold out quickly.
I love how easy they are to make & the compliments I get whenever I make them, well those don't hurt. Haha!
NOTE: I like to use creamy Jif peanut butter, but the choice is yours. I also like to use dark chocolate chips. I feel that the peanut butter & confectioner's sugar adds enough sweetness.
creamy and/or crunchy peanut butter
dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips
peanut butter, creamy
In a large bowl mix together melted butter and confectioners' sugar.
Next, add 2 cups preferred peanut butter until well blended.
Finally, fold in rice crispies until well blended.
In bottom of a 13x11 glass baking dish that has been lined with plastic wrap & lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, gently press mixture evenly into baking dish.
For the Topping:
In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the 6Tbsp creamy peanut butter, stirring until smooth. (Heat approx 30-45 seconds at a time, then stir & repeat until fully melted.)
Allow to cool to about room temperature and pour on top of peanut butter mixture. (I let it cool for about 10-15min.)
Chill until set but not hard. Chocolate will begin to lose its shiny appearance. (approx. 1hr & 15min.)
Cut into pieces of desired size. (I use a pizza cutter.)
Return to the refrigerator until chocolate has hardened completely. (Overnight is best.) The longer these are kept, the better they get.
